I was incredibly impressed by this hostel and will recommend it to all my friends. The beds are super comfy and sturdy. Seriously, the best bunk-beds I've encountered in any hostel. The breakfast was top-notch too--real coffee, eggs, etc. The staff were also excellent--really friendly and helpful. It's well-located as it's nearly within sight of the Changdeok airport bus drop-off... More

Our stay was pleasant and we will definitely return again next time. What we enjoy about staying in such backpacker/budget style hostels/inns is that the service is always more personal and friendly unlike larger commercial hotels, which of course would have better facilities and finishings, but less personal service. The hotel is within walking distance to the Changdeokgung and Anguk... More

I'm a solo traveller, it's my 1st time and stop to visit Seoul. I was so amazed by the cozy design cafe of the hostel ground floor. And received a warm welcome by the friendly staff at late night check-in. It's very convenient! 7 mins to the subway station, a lot of convenient store, in a cultural neighborhood, nearby Changdeokgung... More

Having stayed at GAM for almost 3 weeks, I had no qualms at all! Each staff at the hostel was very friendly and was kind enough to entertain all my questions and requests. Rooms are pretty clean, and the toilets (even the shared ones) are clean each time I needed to use it. Tried out the triple room, family room... More

Stayed in here at 4 nights .. Pretty decent place to be in. It had a chic cafe to have breakfast in and also lunch or dinner if you wished. I was hoping that we had time to taste the waffles .. Though shopping has probably consumed it all. The room was of a comfortable size which a double decker... More
